    if the top of your plug has a 'ball', it can be removed by turning it counter-clockwise, revealing the threaded post
    the stock plugwire cap pushes onto the threaded part

    Spark plugs are made pretty much the same way... the threaded part that goes into the engine and the other end which is outside the engine and gets the spark plug wire attached to it. That end of the spark plug is also threaded and sometimes there is a little round nut on those threads. If you can see threads on the end there's no nut. If you can't see threads then there is a nut. Some rubber boots (the part connected to the wire which fits over the end of the spark plug) are set up for a spark plug with the round nut on it and some are smaller and are to fit on the plug with the nut removed. Our kits are set up for the smaller diameter, the threaded end with the roundish nut removed. Simple.

    If you look at the top of your spark plug and there's a little hole in the center of the tip it unscrews to reveal a threaded end, the spark plug cap slides onto that, unlike any mower you've put together at Home Depot.

    Or you could just find any old sparkmplug wire from a car and use one end of it instead.
